Holiday man charged with abuse after boy's spanking

HOLIDAY

Man charged with abuse after Spanking

Authorities say Bryan Yukall Reed gave the 8-year-old boy a choice Sunday: get grounded again or get spanked. The boy was tired of being grounded, so he chose the spanking, according to a Pasco Sheriff's Office report. Reed allegedly hit the boy 10 times with a leather belt on his back and legs, leaving a large amount of bruising on the boy's right leg, the report said. The boy told deputies he was in pain and he asked Reed to stop. Authorities would not identify the boy because of the nature of the charges, nor would they say who reported the incident. Reed, 35, of 2015 Melody Drive was arrested Tuesday on one count of child abuse. He later admitted to beating the boy but said he only intended to hit his buttocks, the report said. He was released Wednesday morning on $5,000 bail.

ZEPHYRHILLS

Police seek driver in fatal hit-run

Florida Highway Patrol is hoping for the public's help in finding the driver responsible for an April 17, 2007, collision that killed a pedestrian. Deannie M. Gilbow, 25, of Zephyrhills was walking north on the paved shoulder of U.S. 98, just north of County Road 54, when a car struck her between 12:30 and 1:30 a.m., FHP reported. The driver fled the scene. Gilbow was not discovered until about 7 a.m. Investigators believe the car involved may be a dark maroon Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Comanche or Jeep Wagoneer model from sometime between 1984 and 1996. Damage to the vehicle could include the right front headlight, front bumper and grill, radio antenna and exterior moldings. Anyone with information may call Cpl. Richard Kraus at (813) 631-4020.

Correction

Eleana Frangedis, 14, was pictured with an Aug. 26 article about Hannah Montana star Mitchel Musso visiting Trinity Elementary. Due to incomplete information provided to the Times, the caption gave a wrong last name for the girl.
